As much as I like Pominville, one of the frequent things heard during Sabres games the last few years has been... "And Pominville fires it wide!" Often this happened after setups by Vanek.

And 1 goal per game against, since the Ruhwedel addition / Myers subtraction. Take your pick.

I'd say he's probably one of the top 125 passers in the league, yeah

Right, but that's how Vanek gets his goals, not his assists.

FWIW, Ference credited Vanek for the idea.

Deadspin gave credit to 'Sabres Captain Drew Stafford' this morning.

Not that credit really matters, but LOL.

So you've analyzed every single one of Vanek's career assists and they were all primary assists with him directly passing the puck to the goal scorer?
